Greg Horne, Jr. Wins Division 5 Championship

From Division 5, New England East, on August 2-3, 2014, Greg Horne, Jr., of Mansfield, MA, is one step closer to the ABA National Championship with a first place win in the American Fish Tour tournament. Greg's 10 bass limit weighed-in for a total of 25.37 pounds. Second place went to Louie Bernardo who weighed in a two-day, ten fish limit at 23.24 pounds. Third place was Cameron Smith with a weight of 21.88 pounds. Big bass was awarded to Greg Horne Jr. who weighed in a 4.50 pound largemouth bass.
The top 5 anglers were:
1. Greg Horne, Jr.       25.37 Lbs.
2. Louie Bernardo      23.24 Lbs.
3. Cameron Smith      21.88 Lbs.
4. Rich LaChance      21.40 Lbs.
5. Patrick Chapin       20.50 Lbs.
Conditions: We had 7 degree air temps w/cloudy skies, 50% humidity. Water temps were in the low 70s.
Winning Strategy: Greg's pattern was to go to many spots because of the ever changing weather pattern and just flipped a jig and was fortunate to catch his kicker fish on an unfamiliar spot.
Next Divisional Tournament: Division 5's next tournament will be held at Wequaquet Lake, Centerville, MA on September 7, 2014.
